An open letter to the President & U.S. Congress

I'd like to share the recent response to Biden's recent speech criticizing the peaceful protests and demonstrations on college campuses to advocate for the end to Israel's genocide and their university's complicity from the respected activist and author William C. Anderson. In response to Biden's statement "Dissent must never lead to disorder", Anderson wrote "In his letter from Birmingham Jail, Martin Luther King, Jr., told us the white moderate “is more devoted to ‘order’ than to justice” and said this is someone who “prefers a negative peace which is the absence of tension to a positive peace which is the presence of justice.”" History is repeating itself right now in real-time, and this administration is, like it's predecessors, on the wrong side. Over 2,400 American students have been detained by police for the "crime" of advocating for Palestinian human rights. History will look back on those students with honor, but this administration? Well, I think you can get the idea. Meanwhile, Israel murdered another aid worker on 5/2, Ahmed, trying to deliver humanitarian supplies to northern Gaza. I've lost count at this point how many aid workers have been similarly murdered by Israel just in the past 30 days. I strongly agree with the recent letter 86 members of the House of Representatives sent to the Biden administration today advising they believe there is credible proof Israel is not complying with a provision of the US Foreign Assistance Act that requires recipients of our military aid to meet international humanitarian law. I demand that you:  – Hold Israel accountable for a permanent, immediate ceasefire, their violations of the Genocide Convention, and gross human rights violations by any means necessary – Call for the immediate end of Israel’s occupation and apartheid and support Palestinians in their fight for freedom and peace – Secure the immediate release and safety of all Palestinians who have been abducted and held captive by Israel, including those whose indefinite detention began prior to 10/7 – Permanently end all monetary, diplomatic, and military aid given to Israel and enforce Leahy Law – Reallocate all funds given to Israel and commit additional resources for ongoing humanitarian relief for Palestinians starting with immediately resuming funding of UNRWA – Immediately withdraw all U.S. troops, military assets, and all other assets deployed throughout the Middle East and cease all actions that further escalate a larger regional conflict – Pass legislation that voids all anti-BDS laws at the federal level – Vote no on H.R. 7521 and any similar legislation proposed
